 Thank you for posting and sharing this test.

However i find that step 1 gives the impression it is in a widows environment I have 3 flavours of LINUX here and none have start menu> accessories .


 Perhaps changing / adding open a Konsol terminal or Command line terminal would clarify the fact that this test is in a LINUX environment as the only way I knew what it was is the DD command.

 thanks and keep up the good work
